Can't tell you how nice it is to have my copter portable. Being able to throw my backpack in the car whenever my family and I go anywhere is awesome. We parked outside a local coffee shop in Port Townsend today and before we went for a walk I was able to get this flight in. Overall I am very happy with this design. It flies well and makes it easy for me to fly whenever the oportunity is presented.

I'd like to thank Jacie(Wife) for her amazing camera work and directing abilities. She forced me to say that with her eye balls

Nice! Roughly how long does it take to unpack -> flight ready?
Also is that a mode 2 sanwa/airtronics rds8000 I spot? :-) I have the rd8000 awaiting FrSky mod, nice radios!

Thanks. My first test flight was 11 minutes from unpack three minute flight to packed up and walking away. Yeah it's a rds. I didn't like it at first because I kept having brown outs. But, I put my FPV gear on a different battery and everything works great now.

Great production on the vid! The first vid pushed me to make a more portable multirotor. I should be done with it shortly. Not quite as portable as this, but much smaller than anything else I have :)

Keep up the good work!

The more spacious, cheaper, and more functional frame, I've seen so far.
congratulations, excellent.

I hope that is not patented because I'll make one.

Very cool my friend, I go to Port Townsend a lot with my family. If your ever in the Redmond, Wa look me up. We can get together and fly.....PM me if you want to swap info....

One of the most unique designs I have seen in a long time and original. I bet on water she will do fine, can't wait to see that video flight ;)

Very nice work on video edition...  My H frame is not even finished that you give me a new build project...

Keep the good stuff coming Jake, I really like your practical and DIY approach.

if not too much to ask, could you show more detailed photos of boxcopter.

Thanks Tim. I like the Flip cameras more than the GoPros. Too bad Cisco closed the doors on it.
